[movies]Hubble Confirms Abundance of Protoplanetary Disks around Newborn Stars - *Credit:* C.R. O'Dell/Rice University; NASA [ http://www.nasa.gov/ ]
*Description*: A NASA Hubble Space Telescope image of a region of the Great Nebula in Orion. This is one of the nearest regions of very recent star formation (300,000 years ago). The nebula is a giant gas cloud illuminated by the brightest of the young hot stars at the top of the picture. Many of the fainter young stars are surrounded by disks of dust and gas that are slightly more than twice the diameter of the Solar System...

[movies]Hubble Spies Brown Dwarfs in Nearby Stellar Nursery - *Credits for near-infrared image:* NASA [ http://www.nasa.gov/ ]; K.L. Luhman (Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, Cambridge, Mass.); and G. Schneider, E. Young, G. Rieke, A. Cotera, H. Chen, M. Rieke, R. Thompson (Steward Observatory, University of Arizona, Tucson, Ariz.) *Credits for visible-light picture:* NASA [ http://www.nasa.gov/ ], C.R. O'Dell and S.K. Wong (Rice University)
*Description*: Probing deep within a neighborhood stellar nursery, NASA's Hubble Space Telescope uncovered a swarm of newborn brown dwarfs. The orbiting observatory's near-infrared camera revealed about 50 of these objects throughout the Orion Nebula's Trapezium cluster [image at right], about 1,500 light-years from Earth. Appearing like glistening precious stones surrounding a setting of sparkling diamonds, more than 300 fledgling stars and brown dwarfs surround the brightest, most massive star...
